Coffee brewed by machines depends on the quality of machines and coffee. High-quality machines together with good beans will result in an excellent cup of coffee. Today, coffee machines can easily make espresso, latté, cappuccino, latté macchiato, americano, flat white…
AUTOMATIC ESPRESSO MACHINES
The Super-Automatic Espresso machine is a fully automatic espresso brewer. The machine has a built-in grinder and is very convenient for office use. All you need to do is load whole bean coffee into the bean hopper and select your favorite brew. Nevertheless, these super-automatic machines are usually costly, require regular expensive maintenance, and are very picky when it comes to coffee beans. Coffee beans for these machines need to be pure without added flavoring and are light roasted to prevent coffee oils from seeping out to the bean’s surface. Light-roasted beans, however, taste unpleasantly sour and are underdeveloped. The 1864 CAFÉ® Barista product has overcome this problem by using Anti-Residue™ technology to produce coffee beans that are not only aromatic, non-sour but also fully developed without an oily shine.
Semi-automatic espresso machines
Semi-automatic espresso machines are the most commonly used today. These machines require users to grind and tamp ground coffee on their own. The quality of an espresso cup depends on operators’ brewing skill which includes knowledge of grind size, tamping technique, extraction time and temperature, quality of coffee beans, as well as knowledge of machine quality. The advantage of semi-automatic machines is that dark-roasted or oily coffee beans can be used. These beans are usually very aromatic and well developed.

Pod Coffee Machines
Pod coffee machines are convenient to use and relatively affordable. Nevertheless, a cup brewed from a Pod is more expensive and the quality is also lower than a cup brewed by regular espresso machines.
